Tennis Coaching

Tennis is a common sport played in Spring and Summer. We started learning how to play tennis at school and boy was I excited about that. I couldn't wait.

When we got to the courts I felt a little bit nervous and excited at the same time. What if I miss the ball when someone serves it to me? If I did, I would probably be the worst tennis player in history.

Our coach, I mean our professional coach Marcel taught us how to do a forehand. A forehand was really easy. We learned how to do that hit in badminton all ready. All of us were pro's at it.

After learning the forehand we played a rally called King or Queen. It was like a real game of tennis. If you won, you would stay on and challenge another opponent. At the end if you were still the Queen or King you wouldn't have to do the awful punishment, which was 20 star jumps.

Tennis was a game I needed to play more often, because I LOVED it. It really got me going. I can't wait to play tennis again.

Ice Cream Comets

Did you know that a comet is made out of ice cream?(Just jokes)It is really made out of rocks,ice,and gas.Can you believe that the comets tail is not always at the back,when the comet is coming near the sun the tail is at the back.But when it passes the sun the tail is in the front.It is like the tail has to stay away from the sun I think.

As we were all waiting I really wanted to start,because when we finish making our comment we could eat it our comment .Mr Sommerville and Miss Garden had just finish and that mean that we were able to start now.We were all siting up to go first,I was lucky that Miss garden picked me and some other people to go first.When we got I got my Ice cream in my hand it was already melting so I had to start moving outside.

I was given duct for my ice cream so I started to roll it around my ice cream.When I was finish I got a cone.The dust wasn't real dust it was biscuit crumbs,Hundreds and thousands,also chocolate sprinkles.When I took my first lick is was really nice, that it made me wanting to have more dust on my ice cream.

Then there were the boys turn to put there dust on their ice cream,as they got their dust they kept no scavenging for more
dust. Lucky that Mr Sommerville was there because there wouldn't be any for other people.I poked my thump into my cone and it made a hole in my cone.

These are thing you can use to make a comment out of ice cream
Dust-biscuit crumbs,Hundreds and thousands,also chocolate sprinkles.
Tail- cone
Also ice cream.
If you want to make a comment ice cream you just have to follow the things that I have route down.
I hope you in joy having a comment ice cream.

Willow Park Camp

The day I had been waiting for finally arrived, it was Riverside camp at Wilow park. I had all my things packed and ready to go for an exciting week at camp, I wonder how I will feel down at Wilow park for the first time?

When I was in the bus, it was very hot, I was waiting for the doors to open for some nice fresh air. Then finally we have made it there, I had sweat coming down from my head. I ran out before every body and sat down waiting for what task we are doing for today.

The team I was in was with Luke, our group name was Fist Pumpers. My most exciting day of the week was the food fights with our team leaders. It was revenge for me, and my time to shine by throwing sponges at every body.

I’ve liked my holiday at Willow park for the first time, and thanks to Miss Bush I went. I’m so looking forward to the next River Side camp.

The Lion and the Mouse

One hot day a lion was sleeping in his cave. Then a mouse came along and jumped on him then the clapped the little mouse. The ‘lion’’ said why did you wake? The mouse said please let me so the lion said your to small to eat so I will let you go. If you a in trouble just call me. The little mouse heard the lion roar then he ran to help. When he got their he saw the lion trapped in a trapper’s net. The lion said,”Iam the king of the animals.Your just a little mouse.” So the mouse said,’’ I can gnaw.” So he kept on gnawing g till the net was broken in to little bits.” Oh thank you,’’ said the lion. “I will not laugh at you any more.

Ice Cream Comets

Did you know that some comets are edible? Well our class made some, out of Icy cold Ice cream an Ice cream cone and some biscuits and sprinkles. My comet had Chocolate ice cream on it,(Actually comets are made out of ice and dust).

There was people rushing out the door like a stampede. They were rushing because when the ice cream melts in your hands you will have a melted comet! Though I couldn't wait to eat mine even if it did melt. I ran out of the door as I was inpatient to start eating. I could taste it all ready.

The Rocks and Sprinkles were crushed and bashed to try and make it smaller, but it ended up looking like dust and not so much as rocks. When I tucked into my ice cream my teeth felt cold, my friend said that I had sensitive teeth. Even though my teeth felt cold I carried on do you want to know why? Because it was worth it!

The last lick felt good, also there was a sticky mess through out my fingers, but then I wanted more ice cream. So then I scavenged around for more because they were bringing trays out with delicious lumps of ice cream on it. I picked a lump of vanilla flavored ice cream off the tray and ate it, and by my surprise it was yuck! After that I was picking my teeth because I could feel bits of biscuits and sprinkles stuck in my mouth! Out side where they were putting on the biscuits and sprinkles, right beneath their feet was a huge crumbly mess!

After that I felt sick but I could still taste it. YUM!! I cant wait for another ice cream comet, and you should try it out, just be warned, you will have a big mess after. So if you are under the age of eight ask your parents!!

Litia's Holiday Adventure

I knew this holiday in Napier wasn’t going to be the best ever, but it definitely wasn’t the worst. Our campground was pretty cool, and my favourite part of it was that there was a massive jumping pillow. This gave my friends an idea which we were eager to try out.

Our army of four dashed over to the pillow, cautious not to trip and fall.Outside it was dark and wet. The plan was just to play on the pillow for a while, have a short swim and then head for the showers.You’ll find out soon that it wasn’t very well thought through.

Getting on was easy, but when I tried to run to the other side I slipped straight away. I was a little bit sore but still wanted to try it again. Soon everyone got in to it and we would gang up on one person, to take them down.

In all the fun there were some low lights. I don't exactly know what happened, but it seemed that everything on the ground had ended up on the pillow. So when I slipped over I got lots of stinging cuts on my feet, knees and elbows.Ouch!

Not only did we get heaps of cuts, but we had to run back to the cabin in our towels. It was embarrassing but all worth it because we had heaps of fun on the giant jumping pillow.
